hi. i was wondering if you guys could take a look at this link and tell me what you think about this guitar ? http://www.gbase.com/Stores/Gear/GearDetails.aspx?Item=818748 it's a 56 lp special that has been stripped of its finish. it used to be tv yellow but now is natural. besides that the main issue is that the serial number is gone. the pots and truss rod have been changed. and the pickup selector was damaged, i think he said it was dropped on the ground with the pickup selector hitting the ground first. i've always wanted an old 50's lp special. i'm not a collector so it doesn't need to be completely original. if i do get it i'd like to refinish it in tv yellow if i can find a good guy to do it. i don't want the refinish to mess up the sound at all. but i wanted to know if you guys think this dealer is asking too much or if the price is right? considering the fact that original tv yellow lp specials are going upward to $7500 i don't think i'd ever be able to realistically aford one. so i'm thinking this maybe my chance to get one. and when i get some extra cash i can get it refinish. he played it for me over the phone through a deluxe reverb(64'). of course the phone isn't the best way to listen to a guitar but i still could get the vibe of it. it sounded great. i just wanted to make sure it's an orignal 50's special and that the price is an ok asking price. also do any of you guys know if these old specials had the bumblebee caps or were those just in the jr's? because i have a pair of bumblebee caps and may replace the non-original caps in this special if i decide to get it. thanks for your help.
